will announce a task force led by vice president biden to develop a policy response to the newtown, connecticut shooting. the president is not expected to make any policy decisions but lay out a path forward on a process to come up with some policy proposals. on sunday though he did promise in newtown that he would use whatever power this office holds to prevent future tragedies. yesterday white house spokesman jay carney said that could include reexamining some gun laws. carney said the president supports senator dianne feinstein's attempt to revive the assault weapons ban as well as a ban on high-capacity magazines. he also supports closing the so-called gun show loophole. any effort though at new restrictions on guns will kick off a new fight in washington. the nra spent $18.6 million supporting and opposing candidates during the 2012 cycle. according to the sun life found case, 51% of the numbers of the new congress have received funding from the national rifle association's political action committee at some point in their political careers. the nra is known for staying silent, running out

: in the wake of the newtown shooting, hollywood's biggest stars are bidding that the film industry does, in fact, bear some responsibility for tragedies like this one. this weekend left wing actor jamie foxx said, quote, we cannot turn our back and say that violence in films or anything that we do doesn't have a sort of influence, it does. now, that's ironic. in fact, you know, what mr. foxx had said, he said this while promoting a brand new movie, jango unchained. does he mean it, and if so, will he say no thanks to the paycheck. here with reaction, tamara and nicole. >> they fly in private jets and complain about suvs and greenhouse gases. they have armed guards, but then complain about people who arm themselves. >> it's the same thing that michael moore did when he came out and he had a film on down with capitalism but yet profited off it. it's the same thing. >> it's not the same thing. he's basically saying that hollywood does have an influence in our culture. for example, jaws. it came out a hundred years ago when i was a little kid. now, what is there? there's a jaws ride at disn
